The Eerie Watercolor Works of Michelle Avery Konczyk

by Andy SmithPosted on

Michelle Avery Konczyk’s painted scenes use elements from the human body and the natural world, with absorbing and unsettling results. The works are often rendered in watercolor on paper mounted to panel for both a delicate, moody sensibility. The artist was last featured on HiFructose.com here.

“My paintings are an incorporation of various entities,” the artist says. “I add extra body parts and eyes, which takes the realistic manner in which I paint into my imagination. Through this, I can show you the beauty that lies within our ugly realities. There is a pressing irony, that is my art, for it is everything you would least expect a watercolor painting to be. It is my goal to push the boundaries of the medium and take it where no artist has gone before, not only in technique and subject matter, but in presentation.”

Konczy currently has a show at Arch Enemy Arts in Philadelphia titled “O’Night,” which runs through Sept. 30.
